, he's the candidate of change. president obama is no longer the challenger. he's trying to take that mantle back by saying the policies that mitt romney is selling on the stump are really just failed policies of the past. not sort of any change moving forward. that's his case. the second thing he has, the obama camp is confident about is the ground game. they believe that if they can wrap up some of these midwestern battle grounds like iowa, wisconsin and ohio, it will be very hard for mitt romney to get to 270 electoral votes he needs to take this away from the president. >> heather: we'll see what happens. ed henry live for us on the phone where he just landed in iowa. we'll let you go. we know you have a lot of work to do. thanks. >> gregg: and a fox news alert, drastic new measures in new jersey in the lingering aftermath of super storm sandy. governor chris christie ordering gas rationing. drivers in 12 northern new jersey counties can only buy gasoline on odd or even days. governor christie is hoping the rationing will ease the long lines, preventing a fuel shortage or a b

is not measured in words. real change is measured in achievements and four years ago candidate obama promised to do so very much. but he has fallen so very short. he promised to be a post-partisan president. but he became the most partisan, blaming, attacking, dividing. he said he would focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half. then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned it actually is.9%. that is nine million jobs what short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. think of that. unemployment is higher today than on the day barack obama took office. [booing]. he promised to propose a plan to save social security and medicare from insolvency. he didn't. rather than he raided $716 billion from medicare to pay for his vaunted obamacare.

than me. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: charlie on this mtv interview, at another point, president obama was asked about climate change, and he had this to say. >> we're not moving as fast as we need to, and this is an issue that future generations, mtv viewers are going to have to be dealing with, even more than the older generation is. >> jennifer: to me that is very interesting. do you think that environmentalists might see a general statement like that as just kicking the can down the road? >> i think environmentalists saw him kicking the can down the road by the fact that we had four debates and climate change didn't come up once. in the foreign policy debate teacher's unions and the national debt got more at attention that climate change did. and this week they have a result of climate change blowing right up their shorts on the east coast. so future historians assuming they are any, are going to look at this time in history and think we're all out of our minds. >> charlie the hurricane is coming for that reason when we all know that it is because governor
, the swing state polls haven't changed. they were the same three weeks ago. the bumps that obama got from the second debate has stabilized. unless you know you're right, unless this abc news poll in ohio, which to me is really stark news. >> you mean the ohio poll. >> that changes the equation. the last three weeks, look at all of the swing state polls, everything in them, it's been the same race. for three weeks. >> nicolle wallace, that first debate clearly changed the narrative of this race. >> it served as a light coming on. casting mitt romney in a rather durable way. i agree that the polls in ohio is really the only one that matters. i don't buy that there's a path without ohio for romney. so, what they're pointing to this morning, what does suggest something that may be destabilizing the post-debate stability is, "the des moines register" editorial could have a ripple effect in that part of the country. if they have polls showing them even, that could change the me mentality of the voters in ohio. they're trying to neutralize some of false attacks about the auto bankruptcy. >> that

[ laughter ] >> romney: i don't think adding a new chair in his cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. >> jennifer: if the rnc was any indication, mitt romney knows a lot about useless chairs. with five days before the election, this is no time to play nice. to dissect today's news, we've got a panel that covers every aspect of a war room. strategist karen skelton who worked in the clinton white house. she runs her own phil, skelton strategies. we have joe gar foley who is following the race for the "san francisco chronicle" and pollster from lake research
speeches in 2008 and look at what obama is said it is really about hope and change. there is no doubt. >> jennifer: well, today. but you had an interesting blog post about the event with mitt romney and soliciting donations. they purchase $5,000 worth of donations from wal-mart. and when people came in the door, there was a volunteer who was directing them to the donation table and saying just get one of those donations so you can give it up front, so it was sort of this staged thing, and then they slowed down the packing of the boxes, so it could look line mitt romney -- >> you never do theater? i'm shocked.

real change backspin and -- change? obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. i have promised change and i have a record of achieving it. we need a real turnaround if we're going to get our economy going and get americans working again. i have led that kind of effort before. in business, i helped people turn their dreams into success stories. together, we built names like staples, bright horizons and sports authority and helped create over 100,000 jobs. when i became governor of massachusetts, the economy was in bad shape and the budget was out of balance. the legislature was 85% democrat and people were not sure if we could get the job done. we work together. by the time i left office, we had moved past 20 states in job creation and turned a deficit into a rainy day fund. whether in public office or private business, i did not ask people what party they belong to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as the governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president, and i will start on day one. on my first day of offi
that even with those demographic changes, it's still going to be a struggle for president obama to get that 34 point margin again. >> peter, you spent a lot of time on college campuses. talk about the ground game you see. what are campaigns doing to try to get younger people to the polls? >> i was just in ohio and the talk among the political class there is how obama's really targeted his campaign visits to college campuses. ohio state, ohio university, kent state, bowling green. to sort of draw in these folks and since early vote has started, they can just bus students and young people who come to these rallies over to early voting locations in these counties. so obama has sort of done that while leaving the campaign appearances and sort of blue collar areas to people like bill clinton and joe biden. but young people, they aren't watching tv, they aren't consuming media in the same way that older voters are. only somewhere between 24% and 28% of young people, according to pew, watched your traditional television. so the m campaigns are targetin them digitally. social is big in this el
are going to be vulnerable. we've already seen a change, this just came out publicly, anderson. he was supposed to head out to travel on monday to florida. his first stop. he's now going to be traveling on monday, as you know michelle obama canceled a new hampshire appearance on monday or pardon me, tuesday, because of weather concerns. vice president joe biden was supposed to be heading to virginia beach tomorrow. he's canceled that. so i think we shouldn't be surprised. they're keeping their eye on the storm and i would expect we'll be seeing more changes. >>> let us know what you think. follow me on twitter. i'm tweeting tonight. >>> more raw politics next, starting with who's got the enthusiasm edge. four years ago, obama voters were fired up ready to go. four years later, are voters fired up to fire him? gary tuchman takes the pulse. we're also talk to mary matalin and james carville. how did i get here? dumb luck? or good decisions? ones i've made. ones we've all made. about marriage. children. money. about tomorrow. here's to good decisions. who matters most to you says the
-romney ads show images of president obama. >> you can't change washington from the inside. >> republicans use sad, depressed faces in 21% of their ads, mostly to illustrate unemployment. democrats only use that tactic in 1% of their ads. but democrats went heavy on the elderly, using elderly voices or images in 38% of their ads. >> i was suddenly 60 years old. i had no health care. >> a topic republicans largely stayed away from. despite the emphasis on the hispanic vote, only 2% of ads from either side were in spanish during this period. the use of charts, numbers and statistics was used heavily by both groups. 65% of time for democrats, 79% for republicans. the american flag always an iconic image in political ads was shown in 29% of democratic ads. the flag appeared in just 6% of republican ads but in a much different light. talk about being worried about what he called the never-ending security threats in benghazi, specifically mentioned the rise in islamic extremism. >> republican groups used clips from newspaper headlines in 18% of their ads. >> mitt romney would have let us go under. l
's mayor michael bloomberg said that climate change contributed to the storm, and endorsed mr. obama as the best candidate to tackle the climate change, saying he could still inspire the hope he did four years ago, despite what mr. bloomberg called a disappointing four year term. and brian, there is still one significant event, tomorrow, the last monthly unemployment report, before the election. >> peter alexander, in virginia, thank you. with the romney campaign in virginia, thank you >>> let's get an update on the other side of this, our chief political correspondent, chuck todd, so nice to see everybody getting along, as always. what does it come down to, for "team obama". >> reporter: well, i can tell you, what it comes down to these days are the candidates' schedule, and this is what is telling you everything blood pressure, you would be forgiven to be thinking that you're looking at an airline's hub and spokes system has to change planes in ohio, the point is, he goes to ohio every single day between now and the election, while sprinkling in the battleground states. now let me
very much wants to change from blue for barack obama back to read with the win for the republicans. it will be three other names under the virginia ballot. he served in virginia state senate as a member of congress between 1997 and 2009. carey johnson was the republican governor of new mexico. a representative of the green party. he she is a position focused on the environment. she was arrested for taking supplies and food for activists in texas. this could make a difference in the tight race. >> another big competition on the ballot is the senate race between tim kaine and george allen. the numbers show the lead is shrinking. the latest poll shows 50% and allen at 46. 4% are undecided. allen has gained since the beginning of october. they know d.c. and virginia and both are focused on the economy. >> the one thing to do is not raise taxes. that would only cause more job losses. >> that -- i want to make sure the sacrifice is shared. >> in the final days of campaigning, both are leaning on big virginia names for some help. senator mark warner and republican gov. bob mcdonnell. >> w
